Gold ducat Baby and Christening 2015 with dedication proof
“Where children are, there is the golden age“.
In the past, grandparents and godfathers used to give a gold ducat to a newly born baby‘s crib even in poor families. In 2015, Czech Mint continues in this tradition with an issue of goldmedals in the same shape and weight as Saint Wenceslas ducats. With the gold ducat you will also give a baby a talisman that will accompany him/her throughout entire life and bring luck. And, what’s more, it will be the first investment in the baby’s future!
The gift to the birth of a baby features more than a permanent value of the precious metal, it also has high artistic value. As the main motif of the obverse side talented artist Lenka Nebeská chose a baby wrapped in a headscarf and carried by a stork or a crow to his parents – according to a legend. A ribbon in the shape of heart leaves a space for personal dedication where we will engrave words you wish – for example the baby’s name and date of birth.
Babies and their mothers will certainly appreciate this traditional and at the same time original gift!
